Choosing the best campsites in France

France has more campsites than any other country in Europe, so when you’re planning your holiday, how can you know if you’re choosing one of the best campsites in Franc or if you’ve plumped for une horreur?

France has anywhere between 8,000 and 11,000 registered campsites and, just like hotels, all campsites are given ratings from one to five stars. Each added star guarantees certain extra services that will be available onsite.

All types of site are included, from tiny tent parks with few facilities, to giant villages de plein air that focus on static caravan accommodation and are packed with everything you could want for your family holiday.

Siblu’s holiday parks are a perfect example of a village de plein air – with pools, sports, kids clubs and entertainment, plus static caravans that make self catering really easy, we think of them as sites for luxury camping, for people who love the buzz and spirit of camping but don’t fancy the restrictions of tents and the inconvenience of trekking down to toilet blocks!

Star appeal

As you’d expect, at the bottom end of the grading spectrum are one-star campsites, which are simply required to provide toilets and washing facilities, although not all will come with hot water!

At three-star sites, you can count on site staff who speak at least two languages other than French, as well as a common area with a children’s playground and a variety of other services including internet access and vending machines.

And then there are the four and five-star locations where Siblu’s parks sit. Only around 15% of sites in France have obtained this grade, and it means they feature more facilities, swimming pools, wifi and larger pitch sizes.

What makes Siblu’s parks some of the best campsites in France?

Siblu has 19 holiday villages all over France, stretching from historic Normandy to the sun and sea of the Mediterranean, and all but two have four-star ratings, placing them in the highest tier of French campsites.

Every Siblu holiday village has its own unique character, and they differ in size and facilities, however when you book a Siblu site you can be sure that:

  • our pools will be lifeguarded
  • our teams are multi-lingual
  • we’ll offer daily kids clubs that are organised by ages
  • there will be outdoor play areas, a multi sports pitch, and a wide array of activities across the site

Knowing that the site you choose is safe, well maintained and has all the modern amenities required to make your holiday both relaxing and entertaining means you won’t have to worry about anything once you’re there, and can get straight on with having a good time instead.

Our sites only offer mobile home caravan accommodation because we think it’s more comfortable and more practical than staying in a tent. All our holiday homes feature dedicated bedrooms, fully equipped kitchens and comfortable living rooms, plus toilets and hot showers. Compare that to a tent, where the novelty of camping under canvas, with no heating or electricity, not much space and the need for late-night treks to the toilets, can quickly wear off.

Siblu holiday homes come in three levels of comfort and all include their own bathrooms with hot showers, plus well-equipped kitchens to make self catering easy. Guests can also choose accommodation with a terrace for space and air-conditioning to help handle the hottest weather.

On top of the luxury camping experience, Siblu has a huge range of entertainment activities. Villages have supervised swimming pool complexes with heated pools and an assortment of spas, thermal baths and paddling pools (which are often covered at parks in northerly France).

The kids can have their own fun during the day at one of up to four children’s clubs, each split into appropriate age group from toddlers to teens. The parks themselves are well stocked with restaurants, gyms and a wide selection of sports grounds, whilst at night the sites come alive for the whole family with specially organised dance and comedy shows, alongside bingo, karaoke and quiz nights. This is all complemented by friendly, attentive team members, ready to help deal with whatever you need them to.

Don’t just take our word for it though; check out some of the comments from our Facebook page. Jackie Lyons says: “As a family of three, we have been to France many times. Our holidays have been great, our son loved his Siblu experiences. We’ve been to Domaine de Kerlann and Les Charmettes, returning many times over the years. Both places have been great, with very good facilities. The Staff have always been helpful and really friendly. All in all, I can recommend Siblu as a top family destination.”

Emma Barrett said: “We are returning to Bonne Anse Plage this year for the 2nd time and this will be our 5th Siblu holiday (previously visiting Domaine de Kerlann, Pierres Couchees and La Pignade.) We love the parks, the pools, the entertainment and the area surrounding Bonne Anse. The mobile homes are of a very high quality and make your stay incredibly comfortable. Our children (aged 10, 9, & 5) can’t wait to go back each year. Highly recommend for families with younger children – a definite 5 stars.”
